The U.S. Naval Academy Museum in Annapolis, Maryland, which previously displayed Alan Shepard's Freedom 7 capsule, has an exhibit devoted to its alumni in space.

The space shuttle-era exhibit includes David Leestma's flight suit, a pair of EMU boots, an orbiter rotational hand controller and a model of Discovery that the museum has the academy's alumni sign. From the museum on Twitter on Oct. 5:

We are grateful that Capt. Wendy Lawrence (USNA '81) stopped by to sign our space shuttle model!

Superb Navy display... but I'm a bit biased.
